SACRAMENTS & SACRAMENTALS
 
BAPTISMS: We will baptize anyone who has not been previously baptized with water in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. We never charge a fee for baptisms, and we do not require anyone to attend any classes as a condition of baptism, but at least one meeting between the baptismal candidate and the pastor is necessary to go over what will happen at the service.

CONFIRMATIONS: Our Bishop, the Most Armando Levya (or another bishop approved by him), visits the parish as needed for confirmation. The Pastor provides individual instruction to candidates for Confirmation. We never charge a fee for confirmations, but we do pass the plate during the service to allow everyone to give an offering of their choosing.
 
QUINCEANERAS: Young ladies attaining 15 years of age are invited to celebrate their Quinceanera at our church.  There is no fee for the service, but donations are accepted.  Please contact the Pastor to make arrangements.
 
HOLY ORDERS: Holy Orders for the priesthood and perpetual diaconate are open to all adults at least 18 years of age with a genuine call to ministry, regardless of gender, marital status, sexual orientation, age, race, national origin, or any other immutable characteristic. One or more discernment meetings with the pastor is the first step, followed by referral to Bishop Armando for the filing of an Application and formal interview. Readiness and eligibility for ordination are at the sole discretion of the bishop.
